There are a number of important handbooks and manuals dealing with specific areas or functions in statistics. Handbooks are excellent sources to use for an overview of a topic, to begin a literature search, and to find discussions about schools of thought, theoretical approaches, and landmark research studies. They provide a more in-depth and comprehensive treatment than encyclopedias or dictionaries on a specific topic in the field.

- Computational Statistics Handbook with MATLAB by Wendy L. Martinez; Angel R. MartinezCall Number: UCF Main Library General Collection - 4th Floor -- QA276.4.M272 2002ch3ck availability

"Approaching computational statistics through its theoretical aspects can be daunting. Often intimidated or distracted by the theory, researchers and students can lose sight of the actual goals and applications of the subject. What they need are its key concepts, an understanding of its methods, experience with its implementation, and practice with computational software. Focusing on the computational aspects of statistics rather than the theoretical, Computational Statistics Handbook with MATLAB uses a down-to-earth approach that makes statistics accessible to a wide range of users. The authors integrate the use of MATLAB throughout the book, allowing readers to see the actual implementation of algorithms, but also include step-by-step procedures to allow implementation with any suitable software. The book concentrates on the simulation/Monte Carlo point of view, and contains algorithms for exploratory data analysis, modeling, Monte Carlo simulation, pattern recognition, bootstrap, classification, cross-validation methods, probability density estimation, random number generation, and other computational statistics methods. Emphasis on the practical aspects of statistics, details of the latest techniques, and real implementation experience make the Computational Statistics Handbook with MATLAB more than just the first book to use MATLAB to solve computational problems in statistics. It also forms an outstanding, introduction to statistics for anyone in the many disciplines that involve data analysis." - CRC Handbook of Tables for Order Statistics from Inverse Gaussian Distributions with Applications by N. Balakrishnan; William S. ChenCall Number: UCF Main Library Reference - 2nd Floor -- QA278.7.B34 1997"First derived within the context of life-testing, inverse Gaussian distribution has become one of the most important and widely employed distributions, and is often used to model the lifetimes of components. It is also used as a model in many varied applications, including fatigue analysis, economic prediction analysis, and the analysis of extreme events such as rainfall and flood levels. The interesting features and properties of this distribution make it an important and realistic model in a variety of problems across numerous disciplines. Because of the broad range of applications, this handbook will be useful not only to members of the statistical community but will also appeal to applied scientists, engineers, econometricians, and anyone who desires a thorough evaluation of this important topic."

- Handbook of Applied Multivariate Statistics and Mathematical Modeling by Howard E. A. Tinsley (Editor); Steven D. Brown (Editor)Call Number: UCF Main Library General Collection - 4th Floor -- QA278.H3453 2000ch3ck availability

"Multivariate statistics and mathematical models provide flexible and powerful tools essential in most disciplines. Nevertheless, many practicing researchers lack an adequate knowledge of these techniques, or did once know the techniques, but have not been able to keep abreast of new developments. The Handbook of Applied Multivariate Statistics and Mathematical Modeling explains the appropriate uses of multivariate procedures and mathematical modeling techniques, and prescribe practices that enable applied researchers to use these procedures effectively without needing to concern themselves with the mathematical basis. The Handbook emphasizes using models and statistics as tools. The objective of the book is to inform readers about which tool to use to accomplish which task. Each chapter begins with a discussion of what kinds of questions a particular technique can and cannot answer. As multivariate statistics and modeling techniques are useful across disciplines, these examples include issues of concern in biological and social sciences as well as the humanities." - A Handbook of Introductory Statistical Methods by C.

Balakrishnan; William W. ChenCall Number: UCF Main Library General Collection - 4th Floor -- QA278.7.B344 1999ch3ck availability

"Lognormal distributions are one of the most commonly studied models in the sta tistical literature while being most frequently used in the applied literature. The lognormal distributions have been used in problems arising from such diverse fields as hydrology, biology, communication engineering, environmental science, reliability, agriculture, medical science, mechanical engineering, material science, and pharma cology. Though the lognormal distributions have been around from the beginning of this century (see Chapter 1), much of the work concerning inferential methods for the parameters of lognormal distributions has been done in the recent past. Most of these methods of inference, particUlarly those based on censored samples, involve extensive use of numerical methods to solve some nonlinear equations. Order statistics and their moments have been discussed quite extensively in the literature for many distributions. It is very well known that the moments of order statistics can be derived explicitly only in the case of a few distributions such as exponential, uniform, power function, Pareto, and logistic. In most other cases in cluding the lognormal case, they have to be numerically determined. The moments of order statistics from a specific lognormal distribution have been tabulated ear lier. However, the moments of order statistics from general lognormal distributions have not been discussed in the statistical literature until now primarily due to the extreme computational complexity in their numerical determination." - Handbook of the Logistic Distribution by N.

"Traces the historical development of the normal law. Second Edition offers a comprehensive treatment of the bivariate normal distribution--presenting entirely new material on normal integrals, asymptotic normality, the asymptotic properties of order statistics, and point estimation and statistical intervals." - New Cambridge Statistical Tables by D. V. Lindley; W. F. ScottCall Number: UCF Main Library General Collection - 4th Floor -- QA276.25.L56 1995ch3ck availability

"The second edition of this very successful and authoritative set of tables still benefits from clear typesetting, which makes the figures easy to read and use. It has, however, been improved by the addition of new tables that provide Bayesian confidence limits for the binomial and Poisson distributions, and for the square of the multiple correlation coefficient, which have not been previously available. The intervals are the shortest possible, consistent with the requirement on probability. Great care has been taken to ensure that it is clear just what is being tabulated and how the values may be used; the tables are generally capable of easy interpolation. The book contains all the tables likely to be required for elementary statistical methods in the social, business and natural sciences. It will be an essential aid for teachers, researchers and students in those subjects where statistical analysis is not wholly carried out by computers." - Statistical Tables, Explained & Applied by Louis Laurencelle; Frangois DupuisCall Number: UCF Main Library General Collection - 4th Floor -- QA276.25.L3813 2002ch4ck availability of print version

BalakrishnanCall Number: UCF Main Library Reference - 2nd Floor -- QA278.7.H375 1998"A companion volume to the authors' previous well-received work, the CRC Handbook of Tables for the Use of Order Statistics in Estimation, this handbook discusses testing whether a hypothesis is true or false. Together, these volumes are your complete reference to theory and important tables relating to order statistics and their applications. Once a researcher completes an experiment, the resulting data is assumed to have come from a normal distribution with its mean and variance unknown. The researcher is then presented with a hypothesis testing problem. The use of order statistics and related functions offers a simple, powerful, and interesting approach to solving this problem. This volume presents an introduction to the use of order statistics and explains the various problems and their applications. The role of order statistics in solving these problems is examined, several important statistics are introduced, and their use in addressing testing of hypothesis problems is highlighted. The book also includes numerous tables that facilitate the methods of hypothesis testing using order statistics. Examples are given of the use of these tables in multiple comparison tests, with attention to error rates and sample sizes, and in the analog range of analysis of variance."
